We were having lunch in Austin at the Hula Hut on Lake Austin. Before we were seated I looked over the deck and saw this duck. I think he might be some kind of cross-breed. I like ducks, thus this picture.
If this is a breed of ducks, please chime in with the info, or if you agree it is a cross-breed, go ahead and chime in too.
We are currently in Texas visiting family in the Austin area. Tonight, New Year’s Eve, we all are in San Antonio. We have had a great time, even though the temperatures are in the 30’s with wind chills (yes, the pesky wind chills we thought we were leaving behind in the north) in the low 20’s.
Glad we brought some cold weather clothing!
Shopping and eateries along the River Walk
We have had a fun day, even though it was a very chilly day! We were able to take the boat ride on the San Antonio River. It was fun shopping at the many places along the River Walk, and of course we visited the Alamo, site of the famous battle that ultimately led to Texas gaining its freedom from Mexico.

Happy New Year 2018 to all of our online friends! We appreciate our fellow bloggers and our fellow RVers. A lot of you fit into both categories quite nicely. We wish all of you the best for 2018. Have a successful, safe and blessed year, friends!
Squirrels are cute little critters that are fun to watch as they scurry around. They do, however, play havoc on bird feeders! We caught this fellow snagging sunflower seeds out of the pretty bird feeder in our family’s backyard in Austin.
It is hard to comprehend that the year 2017 is just about gone. I can remember back when I was in my late 20’s that the year 2000 seemed such a long time away! Well, we’re well into the 21st Century now. For crying out loud, our oldest grandson is 23 years old! Can’t be, we tell ourselves.
Merry Christmas from Maj and Sher
